-read what I wrote above. There is no 'git gud' said or implied anywhere.
I am reading it and....
Considering one of the responses I got was "staff factions aren't in charge of making things fun for the members", no, I'm not saying "try harder", I'm saying "try". People insist on clinging to 2-3 objectives and a BYOO when that is nowhere stated as mandatory. People are insisting in starting and finishing three doms a month what that too is not written anywhere (unless you want an SSD).
You're saying 'try' which, kind of imples that the people who disagree with you aren't trying. If that isn't a git gud, I don't know what is. I don't think people cling to those 2-3 objectives and a BYOO strictly, and people are trying. I can remember doing dominions, trying to make them interesting. Really trying.
Or maybe, just maybe, people cling to that 50 post thing. The 50 post thing as a minimum requirement is the only mandatory thing in doms that needs to be completed for the hex to be added to a faction's cloud. That's it. There are almost no restrictions on the content of those 50 posts (obviously, you can't post a meme per post, nothing else, and expect it to be accepted). You want the contents of a skirmish? You can do that in a dom. You want the contents of something diplomatic? You can do that in a dom. You want it to be centered around something that's a big event for one of your faction's members? You can do that in a dom. You want to explore a location someone in your faction just subbed? You can do that in a dom.You want to start a dom now but only hand it in 3 months from now when there are 500 posts in it? You can do that too!
People cling to that 50 post thing BECAUSE doms are the problem. Because, all those things you're saying you can do in a dom? Has nothing to do with why people do doms. Doms are done, cause map game. And, while yes you can do all these wonderful things in a dominion, you can do it anywhere else. So, people do stick to those 50 post things, and I'm pretty sure CIS doesn't go far beyond the minimum until its sent out for approval either. Because, doms are there for map game. Not player enjoyment.
That's why, personally I feel they are the problem and the 'try harder' attitude you have isn't relevant or helpful.
Re-read what I wrote above. There is no 'git gud' said or implied anywhere. But yes, keeping faction members interested always has and always will be the responsibility of the faction staff. For any faction, for any board, in any fandom.
There is plenty of 'git gud' implied everywhere. Sorry, but that's all I see.
